New on Blu-ray & DVD for September 5, 2017 "Megan Leavey" and "Rough Night"

Rough Night
Starring: Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon
Rated R
In the film, five best friends from college reunite for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. Their hard partying takes a hilariously dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper. Amidst the craziness of trying to cover it up, they're ultimately brought closer together when it matters most.

Nothing in “Rough Night” is very redeemable. The film is terrible from beginning to end with a parade of ill-timed sex jokes, poor writing, unlikeable characters and hap-hazard directing. The film plays out as pretty much a total ripoff of “Weekend at Bernie's,” except less funny.

Miss this one at all costs. It gets a D and is rated R




Megan Leavey
Starring: Kate Mara and Edie Falco
Rated PG-13


The film is based on a true story of a young Marine corporal who forms a unique and binding bond with a combat dog during her assignment in Iraq. 

“Megan Leavey” is an emotional and satisfying film about the love between humans and their animals, in this case a dog. Over the years we've seen films like this which all touch our hearts. Films like, “My Dog Skip,” “Turner and Hootch,” “Eight Below,” “Max” and even as far back as “Lassie,” prove that movie makers know audiences love films about the human bond with animals.

“Megan Leavey” proves that the formula still works and is very powerful.

Kate Mara delivers an honest performance as the title character, who was lost in life until she decided to join the Marines. The film's best moments come from footage of Mara as Megan Leavey working with her canine trainee, Rex.

All in all “Megan Leavey” is a film well worth your time to experience.

It gets a B and is rated PG-13.
